Great reference!

This deck has many issues and errors. It does more harm than good to the learner.

• various examples are wrong:
/i/: "aiuto" is /a'juto/
/ɛ/: "e" is /e/
/j/: "io" is /'io/
/u/: "cuore" is /'kwɔɾe/, "fuori" is /'fwɔɾi/
• many symbols are non-IPA: /#/ instead of /ʧ/, /%/ instead of /ʤ/, /&/ instead of /ɾ/, /+/ instead of /rː/; the symbol for /ɡ/ is wrong too (the used /g/ might look the same in some fonts, but it's wrong)
• only one example per phoneme has audio, and there are no transcriptions
• there is no mention of geminated consonants, though they are an important part of Italian, and hard for many learners; moreover, the examples mix up single and geminated consonants
• /ŋ/ is included though it's not a phoneme: [ŋ] is an allophone of /n/
• /rː/ and /ɾ/ are treated as separate phonemes, though they are better explained as the single and geminated variants of a single phoneme /r/
• there is no mention of unstressed vowels, for which there is no contrast between [e, ɛ] and between [o, ɔ]

Great deck for learning proper pronunciation of the Italian language. Also like that it includes specifics of symbols (e.g. voiced alveolar fricative, etc.).

Gave me the opportunity to focus on reproducing sound of language.
